Sharapova is now taking rest to recover from a shoulder injury which she has been suffering from quite a time. While speaking to media about the ad campaign she said,
My designs will be next fall, so I’m very excited. Ever since I was young I loved making things and being part of the design process. It’s pieces that really represent my lifestyle and the lifestyle of a New Yorker — a busy life.
